On Saturday, Lizzy and I went to catch a matinee of the “Get Smart” movie. As a fan of the classic series, despite the fact that it was cancelled seventeen years before I was born, I had been anticipating the movie’s release for quite some time. I’d been following the development of the film since way back when Will Ferrell was considered for Max. I had read the early script reviews, which kept my expectations astonishingly low.
